Thank you for your kind welcome and words!

I do plan to continue this. Thank you!

You must roll a Sith warrior! Personally, it is the best story in the game with the most lasting consequences for your actions. It's a wonderful story!

The lack of LS!Jaesa stories is something that piqued my interest. She's a bit fun to play with. Thank you for your compliment!
I'll probably die if you group with me, but I'll go out with both lightsabers drawn stabbing someone in the face. Probably you, but it's cool. Forever Shenanigans!!

I've headcanoned a Cipher Fourteen as my Warrior's mother, but she hasn't turned up much in fic because I'm actually awful at thinking up spy stories. There are so many character opportunities in unassigned Watchers, Ciphers, Keepers, Fixers, Minders...
That's one of the reasons why I find Intelligence so intriguing--so many possibilities for all kinds of people doing all kinds of things there in the background.
Interesting coincidence--my headcanon has a Cipher Fourteen as my Inquisitor's mother.

I like your Sith's origins. Though a designation has high as 90 in a Watcher is a little mind blowing for me. Looking forward to more.
Thaera is not all that sympathetic to the Sith--

I suppose 90 is a bit high of a number, heh. When coming up with Intelligence characters I tend to pick numbers at random, with the theory that the higher the number, the less likely it is for that designation to be in use in-game.

Wow. I like this. Interesting to see something from Quinn's PoV. It's also interesting to see how everyone interprets the various stories, especially the SW story, with that one event that everyone has a different take on.

Everything I just said about how it's interesting to see all the different story interpretations applies here too. I like the interaction between Vector and your agent--very sweet, especially at the end.

Chapter Three spoiler (AKA the Quinn Thing).
Characters: Quinn and LS!Jaesa
Oh, wow. That was...really, really different. I definitely wouldn't mind seeing more of this.

Typical Vette I think she'd definitely use that line a lot on my Warrior, as well.

Huh. This continuation (with bonus family!) tumbled out on the heels of Ruth's previous Discovery prompt, and I swear after this I'm done for the week. I really need to get a hobby.

interesting follow-up, given what you've written with Ruth and Quinn to date. I'm definitely curious where this is going.

Both of yours were very different takes on Quinn; the beginning of "Discovery" in particular. Examining the direct aftermath from Quinn's perspective. And welcome to the thread!

It's good to see we've got so many writers here I'm wondering if any of the Bioware lot read this thread.
